Detailed instructions for making this activity using paper towel rolls (flattened), paint stirrer sticks (they give them out for free at home improvement stores…but to be courteous, ask first), scrapbook paper, yarn, white card stock, a glue stick, and a marker. Optional: laminator and hot glue gun.
